2.3.1. Use Global Reset Resources

ASIC designs may use local resets to avoid long routing delays. Take advantage of the device-wide asynchronous reset pin available on most FPGAs to eliminate these problems. This reset signal provides low-skew routing across the device.

The following are three types of resets used in synchronous circuits:

  • Synchronous Reset
  • Asynchronous Reset
  • Synchronized Asynchronous Reset—preferred when designing an FPGA circuit
